  • Wow....just, WOW!!!! We got married on October 25th at the Foundry and hiring Real Food Catering was hands down one of the best decisions that we made (second only to marrying each other, haha). There are no words to adequately describe just how incredibly patient, attentive and helpful Yen and her entire team are. We didn't use a wedding planner and honestly, with Yen's expertise, we didn't need one. From the very beginning, Yen and Gary walked us through the entire process (every step of the way) and gave tips and feedback that helped to make our wedding day as seamless as possible. Yen's attention to detail is truly unmatched! I am Type-A and neurotic and was completely floored that every. single. detail and logistical item was accounted for. There are so many moving parts on the day-of and Yen's experience/professionalism reassured us that she was in control and that we didn't need to worry about anything. We were able to truly relax and soak in every moment on the big day sin... Read more

  • Real Food Catering was amazing to work with for my wedding in August 2019. Yen and Gary were wonderful during every stage of the process and I greatly appreciated their straight-forward advice (which was extremely valuable with their many years of experience at my venue). My guests raved about the food, many said their favorite part of the reception was the passed appetizers during cocktail hour! I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a caterer in the NYC area!

  • I truly have no words to fully describe just how amazing working with Yen and Gary and the rest of the Real Foods team has been. Hiring them was hands down the best decision we made for our wedding at the Green Building! From our first communication with Yen - we knew we were in great hands. Not only was Yen very responsive, but she and Gary were so helpful with not just food choices but also the rentals, the layout, the timeline and so many other details of the night! When we had our tasting, we were so impressed and when we tasted the food at our wedding, we were just blown away! All our guests raved about how delicious the food was and how much food there was - everyone was stuffed!! I want to re-do the wedding just to have more of the delicious food! Trust me when I say, hire Real Food Catering for your wedding and you will be so thankful you did! I didn’t have to worry about a single thing the day of my wedding - Yen and her team had it all under control. We would hire ... Read more

  • Yen, Gary and the Real Food Catering team are so exceptional. Choosing them to cater your wedding will be the best decision you could possibly make while planning your wedding. My now husband and I looked all over NYC for someone who could make our vision of a Sichuan (Szechuan) wedding menu come alive and Real Food Catering made that happen above and beyond our loftiest and wildest expectations. We chose an incredibly difficult menu that would showcase our culture and personality--complete with spicy lamb skewers and fish filet--and they absolutely KILLED IT. Even the Asian parents and relatives from China we invited (who are usually a very tough crowd when it comes to food) thought the food was amazing!! :) I heard endless raves from friends about the food and like many of the other reviews on this page can corroborate the phrase "BEST WEDDING EVER" being heard throughout the night. Real Food Catering is seriously in a league of their own when it comes to service as well--all of the ... Read more

  • We are so happy to have chosen Real Food for our wedding. Throughout our planning process, we left each meeting and phone call feeling very happy and assured that we were in the right hands. We could not have imagined our wedding day turning out any better than what Yen and her team accomplished. The tables were beautiful, the setup of everything was beautiful, and the transitions of everything from ceremony to cocktail hour to dinner were seamless. We are still hearing from our guests, raving about how delicious the food was. There is a reason why Real Food is listed as a preferred vendor for every venue that we had looked at! With Yen and Gary running the show, we did not have to worry. They are true professionals!

  • I cannot recommend Yen and her team (especially Gary!) enough. They were fantastic to work with. The food was delicious, Yen was extremely knowledgeable of the building and made great suggestions on how to layout the space. She was a great help when it came to selecting the rentals, how much alcohol we should provide, and she made me and my fiancé feel like we were in great hands through every step of the process. Everyone kept raving about the food, and it's all thanks to Real Food Catering!

  • Yen & Gary have outstanding reviews online everywhere, but these 5-stars don't even do justice to just how incredible Real Food Catering is! This fabulous duo helped me in every aspect of planning - they went above and beyond with everything! They held my hand through the entire process, explained everything clearly, created a floor plan, dealt with the rentals, hooked me up with *the best desserts* and a sushi station, and were all around AWESOME. Talented, geniune, funny, a complete pleasure to work with -- not to mention, all of the food offered is delicious (go to your taste test starving). I love them! If you're considering them, let me sway your booking decision - *DO IT.*

  • For any brides and grooms looking for an amazing caterer who makes you feel like family - look no further; Real Food Catering is five star. Yen, Gary, and their staff are truly the best in their craft. From day one, they worked with us to make sure the food, cocktails, and vision stayed within budget. Our July 28th wedding couldn’t have been more perfect thanks to Yen and the team! Yen was super attentive and accommodating to our needs the entire night. The waitstaff was always available while remaining stealth and the bartenders were top-notch and kept up with the crowd effortlessly. Almost a month later and our guests are still talking about the yummy food and drinks - especially the steak, the French 75, and desserts! Yen & Gary - thank you for everything! You are true professionals who worked seamlessly among all of our vendors, and we couldn’t be happier.

  • There is a reason why Real Foods has so many wonderful reviews! Yen was such a pleasure to work with! She was a tremendous help to my son and his fiancé with the planning. It can be overwhelming to choose all of the food, while planning so many other elements. Yen has so much experience, her advice is priceless. The food was excellent, more like restaurant Food than catering. We had tons of compliments. Don’t wait! If Yen is available book her NOW!!!

  • Yen and Gary are absolute professionals and amazing at what they do. The quality of their food is exceptional (we are still getting compliments on it, six months later) and they will guide you through every step of the process. Yen made planning our menu and venue layout so unbelievably easy. Gary was amazing as our day-of coordinator and ensured that everything ran smoothly and on-time, despite some spotty weather and an impromptu dance party before dinner. Their staff was incredibly attentive (my parents are still gushing about how great all of the waiters were) We are so grateful for their work and help. Highly recommend Real Food Catering!

  • Everything related to Real Food was perfect (from the moment we received the proposal all the way through the wedding). Yen's communication was excellent throughout our planning process (both with us and our wedding planner). We were able to have a tasting, which was delicious and appreciated! Our guests raved and raved and raved about the quality, quantity and variety of food at our wedding. Thank you!!!

  • Real Food's Yen and Gary are incredible! We partnered with them for our March 2018 wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made in planning. Yen & Gary were super easy to work with and actually made wedding planning fun! They were extremely accessible throughout the planning process and helped guide us to plan the most incredible night. We had our wedding at a 'raw space' and I was a bit intimidated at first knowing I would have to bring in all vendors and items, that worry went away the second we met with Yen & Gary. They helped us with coordinating the night, gave us recommendations for florists, photographers, rentals etc. We were so happy to have found them... and this was even before we tasted their food! Where do I begin with the food! They crafted a custom menu for us with our guests and preferences in mind, every single guest said how delicious the food was and the quantity was impressive! The wedding night went off without a hitch, we felt so comfortable with Gary ther... Read more

  • Yen and Gary from Real Food Catering could not be easier to work with. They made what could have been a stressful part of the wedding planning so easy AND FUN. They let us provide our ideas and then helped us tweak based on their experience and everything was amazing. We have picky eaters on both sides of our family and literally everyone was telling us how great and abundant the food was. People said that they have never had so much food at a wedding before and they loved that. Yen and Gary also were extremely helpful with our alcohol count, our table placement at the venue, and other details that we were doing on our own, without a wedding planner. They go above and beyond to make you happy before, during and after the wedding.

  • I don't know where to begin! Yen & Gary were true experts in their craft!! Everything they told us and recommended was spot on. Not only were they helpful when we were planning, but were genuinely the nicest and most organized team that we worked with. I did not have a wedding planner and I did not need one because of Yen & Gary! The day of we did not have to worry about anything -- everything was set up beautifully and Gary made sure that our ceremony ran flawlessly. He also made sure that we got to eat the delicious food that day!! We had a plate of appetizers waiting after the ceremony and he made us both dinner plates (and took the time to make sure we ate). They really went above and beyond. We have and continue to receive so many compliments about the food at our wedding and how great everything was. If you are researching catering companies, look no further!! A big thank you to Yen, Gary, and the real good catering staff!! You guys are amazing!!! :) - Marie & Charles (Wedd... Read more
